someone i used to know

This was written for a poetry prompt called ‘someone I used to know’.

Prompts are fun and impromptu!

When the first two lines were written I had no idea it would end up being about me and the me I used to know.

I’m sure we all would like to go back in time and give a little ‘heads up’ to our young selves.

I made some very poor choices as a teenager and there were times I thought I might not live to see 21. I did, of course, and continued making bad choices thru my 20’s and early 30’s.

But God had a plan for me… To live and not die. And to turn back to him.

I still don’t know the rest of the plan. And maybe that’s a good thing. God knew we could only handle one day at a time. And then we need to rest and be prepared for the next day.

The Lord God is my strength, and he will make my feet like hinds’ feet, and he will make me to walk upon mine high places.” – Habakkuk 3:19 (KJV)

“The Sovereign Lord is my strength; he makes my feet like the feet of a deer, he enables me to tread on the heights.” – Habakkuk 3:19 (NIV)

Keep on treadin’ … one day at a time,


About treadin' on high

I have made some very bad choices in my lifetime and those choices took me to some places I had no business going. In January of '94, I became a new creature in Christ. And I have learned no matter what I'm going thru, as long as it is God's will, it's far better than one second of my own! He has a plan and I desire more than anything to be a part of it. I am.....always seeking truth!
